    Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Death Valley

    Hello and happy new year to all! Coming from Switzerland and traveling around from San Francisco down to San Diego. Now we are in Tucson. We leave Tucson on Wednesday the 2. and should arrive in Las Vegas on 4. or 5. january (for 3 or 2 nights). Now we have the idea because the weather is so nice to visit the grand canyon and if possible also the monument valley.
    Any ideas where to drive for the ideal route (I hope the streets are open)? Where to sleep? I know, the time is short but for a impression...
    We leave Las Vegas on Monday the 7. (because the prices are much higher then before) and will traveling trough the Death Valley to Palm Springs, Los Angeles (we fly back on January the 13.). Would it be nice to have a night in the Valley? Where? I found the Stovepipe Wells Village. Will this the place to be?
    Thanks a lot for any ideas, tips! Rem

    Death Valley lodging can be found here: Death Valley Hotels & Lodging | Death Valley National Park | US Park Lodging

    The Furnace Creek Inn is very nice, but expensive. The Furnace Creek Ranch is much more reasonably priced.

    I didn't like Stove Pipe Wells. I did like Furnace Creek Ranch. The trick here is that you can go to the Furnace Creek Resort Inn for breakfast to warm up (after photographing at sunrise) where you'll find fresh ground French Roast coffee and raw sugar....
